Deutsch Atkins, P.C.

New York And New Jersey Employment Attorneys

The firm of Deutsch Atkins focuses on protecting the rights of employees who have faced such workplace problems as sexual harassment, bias, discrimination, retaliation or unlawful termination. Partners Neil H. Deutsch and Bruce L. Atkins and their team of exceptional lawyers have represented thousands of clients in New Jersey and New York, and obtained millions of dollars in settlements, jury verdicts and severance packages. Our firm has negotiated and litigated non-compete issues as well as partnership and shareholder disputes. We have prevailed in cases that have altered the landscape of discrimination and employment law in New Jersey. Experience and knowledge count when it comes to remedying discrimination, sexual harassment, racism, sexism, ageism, religious bias, disability discrimination, and vindicating violations of Family and Medical Leave Act rights. We are versed in Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) and fully utilize the tools of mediation and arbitration in assisting clients. We represent clients before the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.


We are one of the largest plaintiff’s law firms in New Jersey, with a reputation for excellence, having consistently, year after year, received the highest peer-review ratings. Neil and Bruce have been included in the Thomson Reuters list of Super Lawyers in the areas of labor and employment law and plaintiffs’ employment litigation. In addition, a number of our associates have also been included in the Thomson Reuters list of New Jersey Super Lawyers’ Rising Stars.* Our depth and resources enable us to battle with Fortune 500 companies and the law firms that frequently represent them.

We treat each client as if he or she was family, understanding that the impact of employment termination upon a client’s life is not to be underestimated. We consider each individual’s circumstances, with an eye toward practicality as well as risk and cost-benefit analysis. Our objective is to protect the rights of our clients (often senior level executives) and maximize their compensation expeditiously and cost effectively. Free phone consultations and fee arrangements that enable meritorious cases to be pursued are available.

Protect Your Employee Rights

Wrongful Termination Leads To Consequences

Employment termination, particularly after many years of service, can have significant financial, emotional, and psychological consequences. Our lawyers are committed to helping wrongfully terminated employees restore their dignity and peace of mind, while also recouping their financial losses.
